Alarming Rise in Autism Brings Hundreds of Parents, Researchers and Clinicians Together from Around the World to Atlanta April 17-19, 2009
Date:4/6/2009

The Autism Research Institute states that many of those diagnosed with autism have underlying medical disorders that when appropriately diagnosed and treated may result in marked improvement

ATLANTA, April 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A child is diagnosed with autism every 20 seconds in the US. Autism is more common in American children than cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. The Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that one in every 94 boys today suffers with some form of autism. It affects children from all backgrounds, and places a tremendous burden on affected families, costing up to $3.2 million dollars per child for a lifetime of care, and over $35 billion a year in the cost to our society.

The Autism Research Institute (ARI) was the first organization to call attention to the alarming increase in autism. Today it's the hub of a worldwide network of parents and professionals seeking the cause, and what can be done to restore health to those affected.

According to pediatrician Dr. Elizabeth Mumper, Medical Director of ARI, new research is challenging the outdated view that autism is an incurable genetic disorder. "What we are discovering is that those with autism frequently have underlying medical disorders that impair the neurological, gastrointestinal, metabolic, and immune systems, and when these problems are accurately diagnosed and treated, the symptoms of autism often improve, sometimes to the point that the child is no longer classified as autistic," stated Mumper.

On April 17-19 hundreds of autism experts, parents, and professionals from around the world will gather to discuss current research and treatment options in Atlanta while they attend the Autism Research Institute's Defeat Autism Now! Conference, held at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel. For more information on autism or to schedule an interview with Dr. Mumper or a parent of a child with autism who
